Investing in rural people in Egypt

In Egypt, IFAD loans support settlement of land reclaimed from the desert in Lower (Northern) Egypt and support for productivity improvements in the old lands in the Nile valley and Upper Egypt.

IFAD has a two-pronged strategic approach, the first centred on livelihood options available to rural households and the second focused on improving the policy space for sustainable and inclusive rural transformation. This will allow IFAD to use its project-based investments to illustrate concrete results on the ground while opening up policy spaces for sector-wide transformational measures.

In its efforts to help reduce poverty, IFAD seeks to bring about more sustainable use of natural resources, promote climate-smart strategies and leverage opportunities from growing private-sector involvement in agriculture.
